So with all this rain we have been having one can only think of sitting on our decks for the first time with the sun beating on us. In those moments, we enjoy the heat of its rays and forget to apply sunscreen, hence the first sunburn of the year. This is a delightful thought but sitting on the deck with an actually Sunburn cocktail in hand is speechless. This comes from California and can be made with tequila or rum. I prefer a little heat but it is a perfect blend of semi-sweet and spice. Mix away!
2 0z Dark rum or Tequila( Ghost has my fav for this)
1/2 oz Elderflower liqueur
1 oz passion fruit liqueur or puree
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
1-2 jalapeno slices
Muddle jalapeno and lemon juice in mixing glass, add rest of ingredients and shake over ice. Strain into a tall glass and garnish with a slice of lemon and jalapeno.
Don’t forget your sunscreen but enjoy the burn inside.
